Bass player Tim Drummond passed away

My condolences to everyone close to Tim.

Tim Drummond toured and recorded with artists like Bob Dylan, James Brown, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joe Cocker,........ And the list goes on.

He played on Joe's album 'Murder of Crows' .

Joe paid his respects on his facebook with the following words.

"very sad this hour to learn of the passing of my old and dear friend, the great bassist tim drummond. his sprawl was immense, having played with a diversity of seminal artists --from james brown to conway twitty, through to ry cooder and neil young, and in the latter pair's most significant periods. as well, he gave up and held down gospel's supreme and funky authority in service to bob dylan, when gospel was the scrambling poet's preferred delivery system.
tim was the bassist on my own second album, "murder of crows" in 1988, and did in that moment what no musician i had long admired had yet done: he treated me like a peer. and it changed me.
rest easy, timmy. put on those fur slippers and glide."

Your music makes that we will not forget. Sleep Well Tim.
